Doldrums

Doldrums

A Poem by Dawn

Stuck in the doldrums
feel low and moody
numb and tired.

Can't seem to shake
this feeling.

Spirit is suffering
and my soul is weak.

Needing a good
jump start to
getting the spark
alight again within.

To give me meaning
and direction in my life.

Oh my Dawn! I wish I could say welcome to the club, but its' not one any of us wishes to be in.
So many are the times I've wandered through the doldrums. I take heart in the phrase "And this too shall end."
Dawn - I hope this phase quickly passes you by and that soon, all will be well.

Please take care - Dave

straight forward plain language everyone can relate to... the blues come out way .. sometimes out of nowhere and for no good reason it seems ;) your poem actually lifts me up because while empathizing with the speaker I could not help but think of the things I do when that happens to me .. and they work :)))))))))))))))) closing is a little deeper than that tho .. meaning in one's life takes some doing to come to grips with ... blessings from the Creator upon you Dawn! ..i pray.

It's strange how you can be great one minute, and straight down the next.
Playing your favourite tunes does it for me, or running.
Hope things get better.

It's really a tough situation and condition to come out from. I have one of my close ones also in depression and so I really wish for you to come out from it soon. The poem is really very nice as it shows the true condition and feeling of a person suffering it. But be hopeful , Happy and stay blessed :)

Music always works for me, something bouncy.

Try music-- Mozart works for me-- sheer joy is in so much of his music.
